VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - January 23, 2017) - Yorkville University is thrilled to announce the opening of its first brick and mortar campus in March 2017. The campus, located in downtown Vancouver at 1090 West Georgia Street, will be a hub for area students studying in Yorkville University's Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with specializations in Accounting, Energy Management, Project Management and Supply Chain Management -- programs Yorkville designed to directly support the B.C. economy.

"We look forward to contributing to the economic development of the province by introducing programs that will train and upgrade B.C. workers to fully participate in the province's economic and business opportunities," said Dr. Rick Davey, President of Yorkville University.

With nearly 2,000 alumni from across Canada, Yorkville University's purpose in commencing operations in B.C. is to advance its national presence by opening its first physical campus in Vancouver and to offer both in-class and online programs that align with the B.C. government's Jobs Plan.
